Something President Trump said about Joe Biden using his VP position a few years ago to pressure Ukraine to fire a prosecutor had MSNBC’s Ali Velshi jumping into kneejerk fact-check mode, claiming the president said it “without evidence.”
The Trump War Room responded with some evidence:
MSNBC's @AliVelshi says "President Trump had repeatedly suggested WITHOUT EVIDENCE that Joe Biden used his VP position to pressure Ukraine to fire the country’s top prosecutor."
IT'S ON TAPE.

Well, it just got a little awkward, didn’t it?
Just like 2016, "Without evidence" and "baseless claims" will be heard over and over again on cable by people who have a predetermined conclusion that nothing untoward has happened so they don't even need to look into the allegations themselves https://t.co/y19Zc3DcpE

The media can now return to pretending the video of Biden doesn’t exist.
